Jagex has this week released a brand new raid for Old School RuneScape, Theatre of Blood, the sequel raid to Chambers of Xeric.
Theatre of Blood has now been added into Old School RuneScape following an overwhelming vote which saw 90% of over 40,000 polled players vote for the new raid. A sequel to Chambers of Xeric, Theatre of Blood will see raiding parties of up to five players run the gauntlet of warriors, creatures, and puzzles as they attempt to take on Lady Verzik Vitur, one of the last true-born vampyres left in Gielinor.
This new raid will feature a brand new wiping death mechanic that’ll see unfortunate members of the party watch helplessly on the sidelines while their teammates continue without them. Fortunately once the room has been overcome by their team they’ll revive and continue the fight.
If the entire party dies, the raid is lost, and while rewards earned during the raid can be obtained outside of the Theatre, the number of deaths can have a dramatic effect on the rewards they receive overall.
Players of Old School RuneScape have been fighting up to this moment, as Theatre of Blood follows on from A Taste of Hope, the fourth part of the Myreque quest series.
Mathew Kemp, Senior Product Manager, Old School RuneScape said:
“As always, we’ve collaborated closely with the Old School RuneScape community throughout the development of Theatre of Blood to make sure it was a worthy follow up to the game’s first raid, The Chambers of Xeric.
“With such an emphatic vote backing the raid, we knew it was important to deliver a really engaging challenge for players looking to run the dangerous gauntlet of the Theatre. With the invaluable feedback of our community, pro-raiders, and content creators, we have delivered a blood-sucking raid worthy of the anticipation!”
Theatre of Blood is available now in Old School RuneScape.
